Songwriter’s Intensive with Andrew Sisk 🎶

April 22, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 6:00 pm

The 2023 Songwriter’s Intensive is a professional development opportunity for emerging and intermediate level songwriters in New Brunswick and is made possible by the generous support of the City of Fredericton.

Songwriters' Intensive with Andrew Sisk. At the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, April 22nd from 1-6pm.

With the pending release of his latest album Adrift, we are thrilled to have Andrew Sisk back this year as our lead songwriter. Andrew uses songwriting whenever he can: to shake off the darkness of winter, or mend a broken heart, to capture a beautiful moment, or to teach children. Songs have always been his work. Through the act of creating music, Sisk has built a life filled with lovely talented friends and collaborators while making joyful memories of recording music. His surreptitious career spanning 20+ years has lead to his songs appearing in Radio, Television, and film, as well as, having songs covered by other artists like songstress Christina Martin with Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor. Perhaps most notably his songs were recorded with the release of a tribute album, “We Have the Same Lights Overhead“(2013), by the Acadian Embassy label which featured many of his celebrated peers recording versions of his songs.

Most recently, Sisk composed the film score for the NFB Documentary short “Paula“. He was commissioned to perform a musical tribute to Canadian Poet Alden Nowlan for the 2020 Shivering Songs Music Festival as a multidisciplinary performance piece.

What to expect…

We will be hosting a one day workshop for emerging songwriters and another for intermediate level songwriters.

There will be workshop fee of $25

Submissions open till March 24th.
